    yep "cleaner clams" are either littlenecks or cherrystones. They are good filter feeders, just beware when they die, they are so foul and it tends to happen under sand....can be bad news, just check in on them frequently.. Had a few of them in an odd setup I had, when they went it crashed the whole system. :( I have been messing around with the smaller venus clams since then at times, they have a very short lifespan, but they cause few problems when they pass. leafy jewel boxes are cool, as are atlantic thorny oysters, if you are getting in to bivalves, check them out.

    Lol well john ur freakin super godlike clean up crew wisdom was dead on literally. I dug them up like 5 mins ago and noticed 1 was dead, the other 5 were alive and just said screw it ur not gonna nuke my system and took them all out just to prevent any risk. I will see if my nitrates will stay normal now though but it was only 2 bucks so it didnt hurt me any
